Lifting the Shroud Cabal

Lifting the Shroud Cabal (Part I)

Timer: 6 days
Rewards: % XP
Weapons: Fire, Human-slayer
Difficulty: Easy
Quest Type: Boss fight
Restrictions: None

Geomancy has become especially in vogue these days with the ley-lines of Auberean, especially around Dereth, being used to store energy. Among the various groups their appears to be a sect, backed by the Virindi, known as the Shroud Cabal. Speak to Nomendar al-Rakh (28.7s 59.2e) in Sawato to learn more.

Nomendar al-Rakh tells you, "Greetings! Have you run into any human bandits that belong to a group known as the Shroud Cabal? I represent a group of concerned Geomancers who are afraid that these renegades may pose some kind of threat, or represent a new threat to the people of Dereth... If you come across any of their artifacts, please bring them to me and I shall try to reward you."

Now we’ll search in the south for the weaker Shroud Cabal Forager Captain who will spawn along the Linvak Mountains spanning up to around Baishi with a small number of Cabal Shroud Foragers. Defeat the Captain and loot a Forager Captain’s Resonator which will have a set of coordinates inscribed on it. You will now head to Southern Resonating Crystal at 52.7s, 46.7e by arriving at Baishi and running to the Shara Settlement Portal (50.1s 63.5e). The crystal will be in the middle of a Menhir Ring.

The crystal pulses with a harsh, discordant noise, then falls silent.

Give the Resonator to the crystal to be drawn into the Shroud Cabal Forager Facility.

You give Southern Resonating Crystal Forager Captain's Resonator.
As you hold the resonator against the crystal, a warm, harmonious tone fills the center of the menhir ring, and you feel yourself being pulled gently into portal space...

~ Shroud Cabal Forager Facility ~
Coords: 52.7s, 46.7e
Nearest Drop: Shara Settlement Portal (from Baishi)
Level: None (Rec. 60+)
Spawns: Shroud Cabal Forager (Human), Augmented Drudge, and Drudge Ravener (Drudge)
Flagging: Hand the Forager Captain’s Resonator to the Southern Resonating Crystal
Weapons: Fire, Human-Slayer

This dungeon is fairly simple and you will need only to continue forward (linear with no way to get lost) Striking down drudges and foragers as you go. At the end you will come to a boss wearing a Virindi Mask.

~ Boss ~
Name: Shroud Cabal Ley-Leech
Weak to: Fire, Human-slayer
Drops: Ley Leech’s Medallion and Ley-Leech’s Orders
Cohorts: Shroud Cabal Forager
Uses: Slashing with acid wars.

Defeat him and loot the medallion and lore and turn the medallion back in to Nomendar al-Rakh to get your reward.

You give Nomendar al-Rakh Ley Leech's Medallion.

Nomendar al-Rakh tells you, "Very interesting! This medallion can actually be used to directly siphon mana out of a node between ley lines, if one possesses the geomantic skill necessary... Not useful to one such as yourself, you understand, but I have colleagues who would find this medallion to be valuable and informative. All I can do is thank you with some practical experience..."

You've earned 5,199,999 experience.

The lore, which you can keep, is scribed with the following:

~Ley-Leech’s Orders~

Our backers have made available enough resources for you to establish a base in the highlands of southern Osteth. I know you have not been as fully trained as your brother, but you are skilled enough at tracing ley lines and at tapping their energies that you should do fine with this limited task - especially in the wake of the recent rise in power throughout the lines.

Be on the lookout for raiders from the surface. Make sure that only trusted captains carry the resonating crystal that allows entrance through our gateways. Above all, be discreet. We must not let the other factions know that they have a new competitor for the potent nodes of this island. Our backers would be displeased to draw such attention. We already know that Nomendar is in Sawato, seeking adventurers who can bring him our medallions. Nomendar must not have our secrets!

Lifting the Shroud Cabal (Part II)

Timer: 6 days
Rewards: % XP
Weapons: Cold, Fire, Human-slayer
Difficulty: Easy
Quest Type: Boss fight
Restrictions: None

This is the slightly harder version of the first Shroud Cabal quest and can be done separately from the first part (The two are not connected). Speak to Nomendar al-Rakh (28.7s 59.2e) in Sawato to learn more about the Shroud Cabal if you haven‘t already.

Nomendar al-Rakh tells you, "Greetings! Have you run into any human bandits that belong to a group known as the Shroud Cabal? I represent a group of concerned Geomancers who are afraid that these renegades may pose some kind of threat, or represent a new threat to the people of Dereth... If you come across any of their artifacts, please bring them to me and I shall try to reward you."

Now we’ll search in the North for the Stronger Shroud Cabal Raider Captain who will spawn along the Lost Wish Mountains spanning up to around Stonehold to near Neydisa Castle with a small number of Cabal Shroud Raiders. Defeat the Captain and loot a Raider Captain’s Resonator which will have a set of coordinates inscribed on it. You will now head to Northern Resonating Crystal at 51.5n, 32.6e by arriving at Holtburg and running to the Mountain Keep Cottages Settlement Portal (40.2n 35.1e). The crystal will be in the middle of a Menhir Ring.

The crystal pulses with a harsh, discordant noise, then falls silent.

Give the Resonator to the crystal to be drawn into the Shroud Cabal Raider Facility.

You give Northern Resonating Crystal Raider Captain's Resonator.
As you hold the resonator against the crystal, a warm, harmonious tone fills the center of the menhir ring, and you feel yourself being pulled gently into portal space...

~ Shroud Cabal Raider Facility ~
Coords: 51.5n, 32.6e
Nearest Drop: Mountain Keep Cottages Settlement Portal (from Holtburg)
Level: None (Rec. 110+)
Spawns: Shroud Cabal Raider (Human), Telumiat Hollow Minion (Hollow Minion)
Flagging: Hand the Raider Captain’s Resonator to the Northern Resonating Crystal
Weapons: Cold, Human-Slayer

This dungeon is fairly simple and you will need only to continue forward (linear with no way to get lost) Striking down minions and raiders as you go. At the end you will come to a boss wearing a Virindi Mask.

~ Boss ~
Name: Shroud Cabal Node-Leech
Weak to: Fire, Human-slayer
Drops: Node Leech’s Medallion and Node-Leech’s Orders
Cohorts: Shroud Cabal Raider
Uses: Slashing with acid wars.

Defeat him and loot the medallion and lore and turn the medallion back in to Nomendar al-Rakh to get your reward.

You give Nomendar al-Rakh Node Leech's Medallion.

Nomendar al-Rakh tells you, "Very interesting! This medallion can actually be used to directly siphon mana out of a node between ley lines, if one possesses the geomantic skill necessary... Not useful to one such as yourself, you understand, but I have colleagues who would find this medallion to be valuable and informative. All I can do is thank you with some practical experience..."

You've earned 6,882,688 experience

The lore, which you can keep, is scribed with the following:

~Node-Leech’s Orders~

To you I am entrusting the task of establishing a base in the comparatively wilder mountains of northern Osteth. You are the most skilled geomancer I have currently available to me, and our patrons are very eager, in their own inscrutable and unemotional way, to have us establish facilities throughout the island and begin drawing and storing the power that runs across Dereth.

I must only caution you to be discreet. I, too, feel the heady and intoxicating surge of ancient, chaotic power that threatens to overflow the ley lines and nodes. I know that the blood sorcerers and the various pawns of the Empyreans all are drawn to the re-awakened nodes and the power that spills forth from them. Temper your own ambitions, lest you overstep yourself and expose yourself to risk. The fool Nomendar al-Rakh has arrived in Sawato, asking after us and the medallions provided to us by our backers. Do not let your medallion fall into his hands!
